Imagine glazing 6 sushi plates
at once…to make them all look like
the original…the one everybody loves.
Imagine combing your hair impatiently,
the long rose wood teeth tickling your scalp.
Imagine painting 6 round plates
laid out in an assembly line
losing desire for radiant red, butterscotch yellow, bone black lines.
Imagine soft, silk hair flowing, sliding
between fingers, slowly, patiently…with loose
love, long thin caresses wanting.
